    Pros

    Subject matter is inspiring. The researchers and programmatic staff are passionate and knowledgeable about their areas of work. They were super sweet and never rude unlike some of the other staff members. Flexible working schedule.

    Cons

    Leadership is clueless. Business development and communications is a mess. The organization does not how to stay relevant and ahead of the curve. If you're not in the president's "nice list," you'll probably never be respected or taken seriously.

    Advice to Management

    Change is good and there's no moving forward without taking some risks.

  2. used to be strong

    Pros

    Very smart workforce, interesting research issues. Much-need new leadership came into play in mid-2010. Changes made reflect a desire to be taken seriously and operate efficiently and credibly.

    Cons

    Employees showed a surprising lack of respect for one another and for their leadership -- disappointing given how educated the workforce is. Often stymied decision-making and progress of the mission.

    Advice to Management

    Hold the employee base accountable; a voice and a voice also comes with responsibility.
